Top Obama Official's Racist Rant

Speaking to graduates of Florida International University, White House National Security Adviser Susan Rice lamented on Wednesday that there are too many white people in top government positions. The lack of diversity, she added, puts our nation at risk because they all think alike. 

Referring to criticism that the U.S. national security workforce is “white, male and Yale,” Ms. Rice told the graduates, “In the halls of power, in the faces of our national security leaders, America is still not fully reflected.” 

“By now, we should all know the dangers of ‘group think,’ where folks who are alike often think alike,” she said. “By contrast, groups comprised of different people tend to question one another’s assumptions, draw on divergent perspectives and experiences, and yield better outcomes.” 

Her comments were reminiscent of Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor, who said in a speech in 2001, before Mr. Obama appointed her to the high court, “I would hope that a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experiences would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male who hasn’t lived that life.” 

Diverse leaders, she said, “can often come up with more creative insights, proffer alternative solutions and thus make better decisions.” 

One has to wonder if by making “better decisions” she means lying about the Benghazi attack being the result of a YouTube video? Or how about playing politics with the Rwandan genocide, attacking Israel for its settlement policy, or praising a hard line communist as “brilliant”?

This despite the fact white males are proportionately underrepresented in government jobs.

And you tell me, people like this aren't just trying to get crap stirred up. Certainly they are, and they will constantly continue to do so. Reminds me of a certain NAACP woman right here in Salisbury who continually does the same thing and has for years, but yet white people are racist? I think not, they are the ones all the time stirring the pot.

516, sorry to inform you, but high level jobs are not awarded by skin color or lack of proper education!

450 is correct, and if you look at her history and read thoroughly, you will have been informed whether you choose to believe it or not.

Amazing that a woman who lied about the Benghazi situation was asked to speak to college graduates. What kind of morals is this teaching American youth? Why would a school even entertain this woman's appearance says a lot about the moral lobotomy so prevalent in today's society. She should never be given such an honor. As for racism, she's a racist that apparently does not have a command of people in Obmam's administration. Her ignorant views are probably a good indication why she feels slighted by the man, yet she doesn't have the sense to admit her own shortcomings.

I don't see too much diversity when I see pro basketball teams. But, I guess this is a fact to be ignored because it doesn't fit her agenda or just can't be defended.
